For You

Heart 2 Heart Challenge asks us to make a card that is larger than the regular 4.25" x 5.5".  Woo Hoo!  I love large cards!  They just give us more real estate to play with our paper and embellishments,  how fun!

I have chosen the Avonlea paper as the background and used the Slate Satin Polka-Dot Ribbon to make a flower - actually two but I layered them and made them into one.  A Rhinestone Designer Brad in the middle and some Sparkles Flourishes extending from the flower, the card was done.

I had the most fun making the flower.  It looks very elegant and if I were the recipient of the card, I'd love to take it off to convert it to a brooch or attach it to a head band.  So darling cute!


Wait a second.  I could make another one for myself.  What am I waiting for? 

I've also entered the card to the challenges below:
1.  Tuesday Throwdown #115 - You're a Gem
2.  Use it Tuesday - Anything Goes
